This is a mango and lychee orchard which is always requiring some care and attention. Able to sign off for the 2nd year visa.

Care by fertigation, watering trees, cutting tree branches. We have a large garden at the house, with many plants and flowers requiring maintenance or watering.There will also be a bit of general housework from time to time.
The busiest time of year is from late October to Christmas when harvesting the delicious mangoes and lychees. There is always frozen (just as good) and dried mango kept for tasting throughout the year.

Lazy Acres is about 25 minutes drive inland from Townsville. The house is a large Queensland style with a heated pool.
At the edge of the property, Major Creek flows for most of year. The property overlooks Mt Elliot with National Park, with interesting walks to large rock pools.

It is a peaceful,relaxed lifestyle, abound with wallabies and, at night, possum viewing. We also have cats, dogs, and poultry.

I enjoy meeting young people from overseas, having been to many parts of the world, I try to make the stay remembered as a fun cultural experience, and not just a working one.
Estelle is a trained nurse, and enjoys sharing her experiences.
Estelle is happy to share the cooking, and likes to taste and learn about food from other countries.
